[DML] Re: LEAKING DOOR SEALS



Take the seal off 3 or 4 inches on either side of the point you 
suspect the leak and pour some water in the track. Start the silicone 
about 3or 4 inches ahead of where the water would run under the seal 
and 3 or 4 inches past that point - put the seal back on while the 
sicilone is not dry. Anywhere from that bend at the windshield down 
past the light switches is the area that water seems to find a path 
inside - because of the angle of the body and seal attachment.

this is my second pair, the first pair did the same thing so I think 
the problem is with the car, Would some black silicone solve the 
problem or is the issue deeper than that.  The track where the seal 
attaches seems pretty clean, no holes in the GRP, of coarse, the 
water is actually seeping under the seal, again on both doors at the 
same spot????
